HID Global announced the launch of Asure ID 2009 card personalization software. The software enables users to control how data is sequenced and entered on to the card. The new software is designed to improve the speed and throughput of enrolling cardholders and making smart card development and deployment simple.
The latest software incorporates familiar Microsoft Ribbon-like controls that are designed to make ID card design, data entry and data management easy. The software is built on the Microsoft .NET technology platform and available in four editions.
Asure ID 2009 also includes iDIRECTOR, a module designed to improve smart card deployment by managing how applications are loaded onto cards in a single encoding pass, including:
- A new Live Link wizard that shows how connections are made to external data sources,
- A configurable data entry center that enables greater control when entering individual data or groups of records,
- Simplified processes for capturing and importing photos and signatures, and
- The ability to preview fully designed cards on-screen prior to printing.
